Upcoming Sessions

May 6, 2015 -- 2PM EST (1PM CST | 12PM MST | 11AM PST)
Engaging with the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy - Presented by Trudi Jacobson and Craig Gibson
The co-chairs of the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education Task Force will identify the ideas underpinning the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy, which creates new opportunities for collaboration on campuses around student engagement with the information ecosystem. The Framework draws on metaliteracy, theories about threshold concepts, and the “backward design” model of Wiggins and McTighe. It promotes knowledge practices and habits of mind as learning goals, and emphasizes the evolving role of the student as creator as well as consumer of knowledge. The presenters will identify principles for instructional design supporting the Framework, as well as assessment methods that address developmental aspects of learning the information literacy concepts and practices comprising the Framework.

About the Presenters:
  • Trudi Jacobson is the Head of the Information Literacy Department at the University at Albany Libraries. She co-chaired the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education Task Force. She received the Miriam Dudley Instruction Librarian of the Year award in 2009. Her current research involves metaliteracy, including badging for metaliteracy abilities. Her most recent book, written with Tom Mackey, is Metaliteracy: Reinventing Information Literacies to Empower Learners (Neal-Schuman, 2014).
  • Craig Gibson is Professor and Head of the FAES (Food, Agriculture, and Environmental Science) Library at The Ohio State University. He has also been Associate Director for Research and Education at Oho State, with responsibilities for reference and research services, outreach and engagement, the libraries’ instruction program, and departmental libraries. His current research interests focus on threshold concepts for information literacy, research and learning commons and their relation to student success, and engagement measures for academic and research libraries. He has taught in the ACRL Immersion Program since 2000, was editor of the ACRL Publications in Librarianship series 2008-2013, and was co-chair of the ACRL Information Literacy Standards Revision Task Force.

June 17, 2015 -- 2PM EST (1PM CST | 12PM MST | 11AM PST)
Little Old Ladies and Rock Star Librarians: Genderizing the Librarian Stereotype - Presented by Ayanna Gaines
This webinar is based off of the author’s chapter “That’s Women’s Work: Pink-Collar Professions, Gender, and the Librarian Stereotype,” published in the ACRL publication The Librarian Stereotype: Deconstructing Perceptions & Presentations of Information Work. She will discuss how the stereotyping of librarianship not only harms the profession with regards to status and pay equity, but is also detrimental to both genders.

About the Presenter:
  • Ayanna Gaines is Associate Librarian at Ventura College in Ventura, CA. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in English from Brown University in Providence, RI, and her Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science  from Dominican University in River Forest, IL. As much as she wants to tweak the librarian stereotype, she has two cats and several cardigans.
Audience: All Type of Libraries
